I am introducing you to someone who is going to fuck up the Australian fashion industry (and by fuck up I mean that in the most positive way) and you are going to want to fucking know her - trust me.
Standout artist and designer, Julia Rich is my good ol pal from my old fashion college, this year we both moved onto different universities, different courses, design still our focus.
Julia has been working under her label ZEKE'S LUNCHBOX for some time now and to be honest the collections are not going to appeal to everyone. Let's just say if you lack appreciation for Romance Was Born, you will certainly have a 'wtf?' moment.
But Julia isn't a clone and she will not design/make for clones, that in itself deserves a little respect. Inspired by vintage, old school art/film/music and television, sci-fi and the grotesque, ZEKE'S LUNCHBOX is not just a design label, but a consistent work of art.
This is Julia's latest design for the Fisherman's Wife Exhibition that was held in Canberra a few weeks ago. I assume most of you would know about the Tale/Dream of the Fisherman's Wife, see what I mean by grotesque? Yeah it's fucking awesome.
